BRAND NEW Audiobook on Library CD - unabridged A Brand New Quality Audiobook from a Full-Time Veteran Owned Bookshop in business since 1992!. Bookseller Inventory # 2226902
Synopsis: In this riveting new book from the author of The Westies and Paddy Whacked, New York Times bestselling author T. J. English offers a front-row seat at the trial of Whitey Bulger and an intimate view of the world of organized crime--and law enforcement--that made him the defining Irish American gangster.For sixteen years Whitey Bulger eluded the long reach of the law. For decades one of the most dangerous men in America, Bulger--the brother of influential Massachusetts senator Billy Bulger--was often romanticized as a Robin Hood-like thief and protector. While he was functioning as the de facto mob boss of New England, Bulger was also serving as a top-echelon informant for the FBI, covertly feeding local prosecutors information about other mob figures--while using their cover to cleverly eliminate his rivals, reinforce his own power, and protect himself from prosecution. Then, in 2011 he was arrested in Southern California and returned to Boston, where he was tried and convicted of racketeering and murder.Our greatest chronicler of the Irish mob in America, T. J. English covered the trial at close range--by day in the courtroom, but also on nights and weekends, interviewing Bulger's associates as well as lawyers, former federal agents, and even members of the jury in the backyards and barrooms of Whitey's world. In Where the Bodies Were Buried, he offers a startlingly revisionist account of Bulger's story--and of the decades-long culture of collusion between the feds and the Irish and Italian mob factions that have ruled New England since the 1970s, when a fateful deal left the FBI fatally compromised. English offers an authoritative look at Bulger's own understanding of his relationship with the FBI and his alleged immunity deal, and illuminates how gangsterism, politics, and law enforcement have continued to be intertwined in Boston.As complex, harrowing, and human as a Scorsese film, Where the Bodies Were Buried is the last word on a reign of terror that many feared would never end.
From the Back Cover:
Whitey Bulger was, following the death of Osama bin Laden, the number-one fugitive on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. He was one of the most prominent mobsters in Boston’s criminal underworld from the 1970s until his disappearance in 1995. He remained at large for sixteen years.
But the truth was much more complicated, as his trial revealed in alarming detail. Throughout the era in which Bulger was a crime boss, he was also a Top Echelon Informant for the FBI, supposedly helping prosecutors make organized-crime cases against the Mafia by feeding them information that could win them convictions in court. His insidious relationship with the justice system represents the hidden horror of the Bulger story and the battleground on which prosecutors and defense lawyers clashed at his trial.
Author T. J. English was present every day of the proceedings, and in Where the Bodies Were Buried gives us not just an account of the trial but also a deeply sourced, disturbing portrait of the decades-long culture of collusion between the Feds and the Irish and Italian Mob factions that ruled Boston and much of New England from the 1970s forward.
